Congrats Frankie So, we have a new Pope, then. Time for Cardinals to celebrate a job well done.

It brings to mind this article by Andrew Brown from 2010.
Persistent reports over the last few years indicate that Pope Benedict XVI enjoys an occasional cigarette – Marlboro Red, it is claimed – in quiet moments, away from prying cameras.
During World Youth Day in Australia in 2008, a bodyguard claimed that the Holy Father had smoked three cigarettes in quick succession. To think of the Pope enjoying a relaxing draw on a King Size cigarette packed with smooth Virginia tobaccos… it only makes me admire him more.
Amen, I say. Amen.
